The rumours regarding Apple's somewhat-forgotten Mac Mini are never in short supply, and adding fuel to the fires today is what claims to be a leaked image of a next-gen model.

Discovered in the forums of MacRumors, the blurry-cam image is said to depict a forthcoming revision to Apple's Mac Mini system. It's long overdue an upgrade having been rarely mentioned at recent Apple events, and he/she who provided the image claims the system sports a 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of DDR3 memory and a SATA SuperDrive.

If the image is to be believed, we can expect a revamped array of connectivity options. The supposedly-new Mac Mini could feature FireWire 800, Gigabit Ethernet, Mini DVI, Mini DisplayPort and five USB ports.

It's always easy to be convinced by a leaked image, but we have our doubts. In today's economic climate, it may make sense for Apple to make its Mac Mini a more affordable route into the Apple range. We've had a sneaky suspicion that NVIDIA's ION platform may appear in a tiny Apple system, and the Mac Mini fits the bill.

I call FAKE too but it could make sense.. upgrade Mini (with 9400M chipset too with luck) and relaunch AppleTV based on Ion/Atom as low power HTPC…..

I'd probably buy both then!
It has far too many USB ports to be an Apple product.

That's sarcasm, by the way.
